    UPDATE: I WILL HAVE TO SPEED UP THE SCHEDULE. APPARENTLY I HAVE ONLY UNTIL FRIDAY TO BRING THE GIFTS BACK TO THE ANGEL TREE. So I WILL BE CONDENSING MULTIPLE DAYS TOGETHER.

    This year I will be holding an auction each day for the next 12 days of christmas. I will be posting an item every day. Post your offer on the thread. Best offer wins. All money donated will go to buy gifts for kids in need (will be picking names from one of those angel trees). I will post the gifts that I purchased and will welcome suggestions. Let's make xmas an event about sharing and helping people that are less fortunate. If you don't wish to partake, I kindly ask that you bump the thread to keep it at the top.

    LAST DAYS PRIZE INFO

    To make things a bit interesting and to make sure I don't miss my deadline of Friday morning to deliver I have condensed all the last lots in one shot.

I will be heading from work directly to the toy and grocery store. Just bid by bumping the thread ex. LOT2 $20

    Quoted from chubtoad13:

    Just to clarify. Does each package include as many stickers as you want from your shop up to the value set for each lot?
    Meaning if I win lot 3 I get to pick up to $100 worth of shop items?

    YES! Crazy isn't it

    Ok folks here is the list with the photo of the bill.

    Lego - Harry Potter Hogwarts Train 75955
    Lego - Star Wars X wing 75218
    Playmobil - Country barn with Silo
    ELENCO - Snap Circuit JR. 100
    Meccano - Arial Rescue 20 in 1
    DC Super Hero Girls scooter
    Baby Alive Potty Dance Baby
    Carcassonne Board Game
    Blokus Board Game
    Crayalo Scribble Scribble
    Pomsies
    Hatchimals Mystery

    Crazy that this is all you can buy for $559 CDN (wish there was more). I didn't want to only give small toys so went for all kinds of price ranges and I tried to squeeze something for all age groups. Also tried to go gender neutral for at least 50% of things. Also went against using things that needed tablets or wifi connections etc...

    With that said I want to thank all participants for their generosity and for making Xmas special for 12 kids this year. They will be dropped off at the school where the angel tree is located tomorrow morning.

    #76 2 years ago

    I gave my wife the job to drop the gifts off this morning. Delivery confirmed According to my wife the lady in the pic was very happy. I still can't believe the amount of tags that are left. Guess I'll have to up my game next year.

    I don't think there would be time. 8am was the cut off time. Next year we could wipe the board clean.
